The lies that led to war: the truth is now emerging
The chant was "Blair lied and soldiers died," but now the full truth about the lies that led to war is starting to emerge. From Washington we have the amazing news that the chimp told at least 935 bare-faced porkies in the run up to the war against Iraq. In London, the government has been ordered to hand over the "dodgy dossier" that helped Blair dupe people into believing that war was necessary.
None of this will help bring back to life the almost 200 soldiers that Britain has lost, but it should help to persuade people not to believe a word that the political class says to them ever again.
